(33:25) Guest: Stanley Rosen, Professor of Political Science and Director of the East Asian Studies Center at the University of Southern California One of last year’s biggest box office hits in North America did even better in China. Transformers 4: Age of Extinction earned about $245 million in the U.S., but more than $300 million in China, making it the highest grossing film of all time in that market.
